You’ll find everything you need for a marine-themed day out at this huge oceanographic park. Press your nose to the glass in the aquarium for a close-up of the Algarve’s marine life. Wander through the habitats of seals and sea lions, aquatic birds and alligators. There’s even a special interaction pool where you can swim with dolphins. Everything here is designed to be educational as well as fun, so both kids and grown-ups will spend the day learning without even realising it. And, when you’ve finished giving your brain a boost, there are plenty more things to see here. You can splash about in the swimming pool and on the flume rides, or stay dry on the pirate ship and mini rollercoasters. Or, if that all sounds a bit too much like hard work, sit back and catch a movie at the 4D cinema before we make our way back to the ship.
